Sam Foley was unconscious in the dressing room last time St Mirren faced Motherwell- but he’s hoping the Buddies can deliver a knockout cup blow to the Steelmen this time.

Motherwell have had St Mirren’s number in recent times. Last time out, the Well eased to a 3-0 win over the Buddies whilst a 2-0 claret and amber victory occurred in their first meeting this term.

Foley was suffering with illness the last time Motherwell came to Paisley but he’s hoping it’s the travelling faithful that are hurting this time out.

“I didn’t play in that game because I had a virus,” Foley explained. “I actually passed out in the dressing room after the game. I was trying to take a bit of heat off the lads, let them worry about me rather than the result!

Foley will not want a repeat of the last St Mirren Well encounter.

“We were poor last time out but we showed a lot of positives at their place. They’ve been good all season and are sitting pretty in the league with some really good players.

“It’s going to be a tough game for us but we feel we are a match for everyone at home. There’s history with this competition at this club, I see Tony Fitzpatrick around every day.

“There’s history with the club and winning cup competitions. There’s no reason why we can’t go as far as the semi-finals at Hampden. The gaffer’s very diligent in what he does and he’ll find out the best way we can beat them.”
